    Zoë's Top Ten White Privileges1 White privilege is having your experiences dismissed and invalidated2 White privilege is growing up poor getting bullied at school getting abused at home having friends abandon you having suicidal thoughts dealing with anxiety and depression and STILL being told that you’re the privileged ones Meanwhile minorities who have loving families good loyal friends a stable home an education constant encouragement to love themselves and a nice cozy room with a laptop and a hot cup of cocoa? STILL victimized than that homeless white man down the street3 White privilege is growing up feeling ugly or insecure yet still being told “But beauty standards cater to YOU”4 White privilege is being told you’re not allowed to exist in fiction and sometimes in real places too because that's not diverse enough for people5 White privilege is having murders or hate crimes against your people be ignored and erased from the media6 White privilege is the double standard of If you find a white person attractive they're privileged if you find a minority attractive they're victims of objectificationfetishization7 White privilege is also the double standard of If a joke is made about whites you should laugh it off and have a sense of humor if a joke is made about minorities you're the devil8 White privilege is having minority children be allowed to bully and harass you during your childhood however much they want and not ever having someone stand up for you because you’re “privileged” So therefore they’re ALLOWED to treat you like that9 White privilege is having your every move be vilified and demonized10 White privilege is not being allowed to get angry about any of this or criticize it because that in and of itself is what apparently makes you so “privileged” in the first place In other words white privilege is being manipulated into keeping uiet rather than disagreeing when someone is attacking you demeaning you or saying untrue things about you And being told that your experiences don’t matter and having them belittled by the idea of “privilege”White privilege is being called privileged when you try to inform ignorant people of your REALITY

    This is a clear and accessible read which introduces the topics of white privilege white supremacy and racism in a a useful way Many of the ideas here were already familiar to me usually from blog posts and other online conversations and it was helpful to have them put together and expanded upon For me as a white woman some of this is challenging some of the material which was new to me was about the ways in which white women in institutions tend to block rather than expand diversity but Kendal's steadfast insistence that hurt feelings won't kill you reminded me to set my discomfort aside and continue to engage The trick is not to stop at the end of the book

    This is a wonderful book The first chapter explains how the author came to believe so strongly in racial justice The middle explains white privilege The last chapter contains sage and insightful suggestions for being a good White ally Kendall writes beautifully transitioning effortlessly from theory to practice to the personal to the organizational She also writes honestly and dares to go a few places timid souls would not Did I say that this was a wonderful book?

    I liked this book and there was little I disagreed with in it Although I'm pretty knowledgeable about race and white privilege I did pick up at least one totally new idea in this book namely the importance of identifying as white I hadn't thought about that at all before but Kendall makes a lot of good points about why white people should think of themselves AS white people and not just as normal or average or whateverMy issues with this book were mainly the focus and the writing style Although the title made it seem like it was going to discuss cross racial interactions of all types the book primarily focused on corporate and academicadministrative environments because that seems to be the consulting work that Kendall does It's an important topic but it doesn't really interest me; I'm interested in casual informal relationships and how social groups and communities can become inclusive and conscious of white privilege For instance I'm involved in various progressive activist movements where white people are nevertheless extremely blind to their privilege and perhaps conseuently few people of color are involved I had hoped this book would shed some light on solving problems like these and although Kendall's general ideas are very applicable almost all of her examples focused on formal corporateadministrative settingsThe other issue is that the writing is a bit hard to follow sometimes Not in the sense that it's too academic it isn't at all but rather that it was hard to see how the ideas were supposed to flow from one to the other Kendall would state a one sentence claim and then follow it up with an example to illustrate it without expanding on the ideas in the brief sentence at all But yeah that's a minor thing Maybe I'm just used to cohesive writingOverall I'd recommend this book and suggest also reading authors such as bell hooks

  6. Zawn V Zawn V says:

    This book reads like the author sat down drank some alcohol then decided to share her thoughts on race Here's a personal anecdote Here's a fact Here's some analysis Random fact Now it's the end of the chapter with no rhyme or reasonI've no beef with the book's central arguments but this piece is terribly argued full of flights of fancy and poorly organized I can't even figure out how she decided to end one chapter and begin another In dire desperate urgent need of an editor but with a good editor the book's content would probably be cut down to a sentence or two The rest is just empty fluff

  7. Diane Ferbrache Diane Ferbrache says:

    Eye opening but lacking much advice in my opinion this is a look at white privilege and the role we as whites play in maintaining the racial divide that subordinated people of color A very interesting book but the author often repeats herself and the overall effect was to leave me depressed but not really understanding what I can do about the situation I would have preferred practical advice

  8. John Forman John Forman says:

    Kendall brilliantly walks a very slippery tight rope between hard reality and hopeful future possibilities while skillfully navigating all of my yeah buts and but I don'ts so that I had to come to terms with the ways that I may be supporting racist systems even without acting with racist behavior or intent

  9. Erica Erica says:

    This book challenged me to become comfortable with the uncomfortable and uncomfortable with the too comfortable This was assigned for my Race and Ethnic Relations class but I would recommend it to anyone looking to explore the way race factors into daily life for themselves as well as others I will even let you borrow it

  10. Casey Casey says:

    I've read this twice and find that I learn a lot each time I read it because I am in a different place in terms of my own awareness about white privilege I wish there were books out there like this one I also wish it hadn't been so expensive and difficult to track down
